What are Double Tops and Double Bottoms?

The Double Tops and Double Bottoms are reversal formations in a forex chart. They are used to determine when a trend reversal is about to start.

A Double Top occurs when an upward trend is about to reverse into a downward trend.

On the other hand, a Double Bottom occurs when a downward trend is starting a reversal to an upward trend.

How to Trade Double Top (M)

The Double Top chart pattern occurs after an extended period of upward movement. A “top” forms when the prices reach the highest point they can go before finding resistance.

When this point is reached, the prices come down shortly before going back to the top again. The prices then meet the same resistance and start going down. This forms two tops as shown below, and this is what we call the Double Top formation or an M as it imitates the shape of letter M.
